7:29 am
here are your visibilities, issue to the south and west. manassas currently only a half mile visibility, culpeper you are at 0. three in martinsburg, came bridge, half mile. sauls bury, lot of fog issues, 1/10 of a mile. like yesterday, we are going to warm up quickly. upper 80s later this afternoon with humidity as well. it is going to feel like summertime, 73, washington, nice mild start, 66 gaithersburg, ignore 48, manassas is getting a bad reading. 62 in hagerstown. generally quiet, piece of energy, upper level low up in ohio valley. that slides into a moist atmosphere. we could fire up a shower or
7:30 am
thunderstorm. they will be widely scattered. there will be a few later today. tomorrow, cold front here out to minneapolis. that means business. that gives us a better chance of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon hours tomorrow and tomorrow night. behind that front, cooler drier air for the weekend. should be beautiful as we get friday afternoon into the weekend. few storms and watch the cold front north and west with a few more showers and storms. 88 today, partly sunny, 72 tonight, warm and muggy overnight, early shower and or storm. accuweather seven day, if you have weekend plans, should be weather wise close to perfect. lower humidity as well both weekend days. that is your forecast.
7:31 am
let's do traffic, see if julie wright will drieliver on the roads. >> eastbound 66 coming in out of manassas, tapping the brakes approaching business 234. leaving fair oaks eastbound 123, you are in for a slow stretch. kennel worth avenue northbound 295 traffic open but slow. checking for the crash at 7th and constitutional avenue. this is lower 14th street after the 14th street bridge pass today reagan building. back out on the topside of the beltway, definitely a slow ride out of college park headed through silver spring. southbound on -- out of jerman
7:32 am
germantown 270. that is a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> julie, thank you very much. we told you yesterday, federal sequester is take a toll. a rise in unemployment, cuts came from professional services and government. should we be worried congress is nowhere close to a budget deal? we turn to david persell. thanks for being with us, david. >> thank you. >> sort of a troubling headline, how do you read this headline? what is going on? >> the sequester is not necessarily a blount trauma to the head of our region, but more a sickness that has spread throughout the entire economy.
7:33 am
obviously started back in march. federal government and federal contracting slowing down for some time prior to this. it is a slow moving event. we are not seeing massive layoffs, contracts not being led out to contractors when employees retire or leave the federal government or even state and local governments. they are not being rehired as of yet. it has not been the blount trauma we are fearing. >> we often hear our area is pardon the expression "bullet proof" because we have government here, because d.c. is this hub of activity, not necessarily so, these numbers are showing. how have we been hit specifically in our area? >> there is truth in conventional wisdom. federal government is here in
7:34 am
washington, d.c. that is not going anywhere as far as any of us know. there will be the base of employment. i would say where we differ is that we have professional services industries, defense contractors, other government contractors deliberately located to do business with the federal government. that contracting business has been up and up and up for decades until 2010 when the amount of contracting peaked. last couple of years small reductions and that trend is likely to continue. we have that sector of the economy not technically part of the federal government but tied to the federal government. >> when congress returns, they get big budget issues looming once again, ground hog day once again talking about debt ceiling and possible shutting down of
7:35 am
the government, how does that play in with the numbers and bouncing back at the same time? >> i wish i had a good answer. there are other experts that specialize in that. they probably don't know. so much of what happens in congress is due to today's political issue or next year's elections. it is hard to say what congress will come up with. what i will say though, in this region, there have been seasonal variations we are looking at that have affected the numbers in the passed couple of months. yet yesterday's report is a good example. in the case of government contractors, september is the month where spending gets put out throughout contractors, lull
7:36 am
in the summer and spike in the fall. >> are you expecting that this time? will that be a big indicator that the sequester has affected this? >> even stronger what happens after that. september is the last month of the federal fiscal year. dell tech put out a report saying they still expect to see september and fourth quarter contracting be up from the third quarter. what happens in the next fiscal year which is the first full fiscal year will be the stronger indicator. >> should we hit the panic button? it is true to pattern? >> it is true to pattern. the down sizing in not just the federal government, also state and local governments well
7:37 am
underway in responds to other trends. sequester has not helped with the recovery from the great recession. it has not been this catastrophic event some feared. >> all right. david parsells from george mason university, thank you. >> thank you. >> wisdom over to you. >> thank you, allison. ahead at 7:00, is oreo lying about their cookie and cream? some say yes. time now is 7:38, we'll be back. the nest has been getting a littlele too quiet of late. so i decided it was time to find some real harmony with nature.
